I love it because it’s a job where you get to really help people, but have so much fun in the process!
It’s the first company I’ve worked for where I feel truly valued as a clinician. I love how we celebrate all our clients, as well as each other.
I’m a reality TV junkie. The Bachelor, Masterchef, Survivor, MAFS… love it all!
Any good murder mystery!
